the storm. this afternoon, president obama visited the red cross, national headquarters and mitt romney -- let's go to obama first. listen to him. >> we certainly feel profoundly for all the families whose lives have been up-ended. and are going to be going through some very tough times over the next several days. and perhaps several weeks and months. the most important message i have for them is that america is with you. we are standing behind you. we are going to do everything we can. to help you get back on your feet. >> dana: mitt romney attended a storm release event in ohio. listen to him. >> we have heavy hearts as you know, with the suffering going on and major part of our country. a lot of people hurting this morning. they were hurting last night. the storm goes on. i have had a chance to speak with some of the governors and the effected areas and they have talked about a lot of people having hard times. i appreciate the fact that people here in dayton got up this morning, some went to the grocery store, i see and purchased things that knows families will need. and -- things th
. governor romney's getting the republicans so you want to look at the middle. 48% for governor romney. 46% for the president so a dead heat. both candidates are in the state today and will be back to make their case. because of ohio's diversity, what's the demographic composition. among nonwhite voters, he's getting 70% of the vote. cleveland, columbus, here in cincinnati. a growing latino population. the president starts with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting the president. then you come here to the southwest corner of the state. cincinnati is in hami

that the democratic campaign has not pushed that mitt romney is saying he will approve the keystone pipeline on its first day in office. this is the dirtiest form of petroleum. it seems to have an alberta pipeline from alberta to texas. we are not getting off of our addiction it to oil. it causes cancers and other diseases. there will continue exploring for oil offshore, in the gulf, and that is just absolute treason against prosperity. host: the former president was in minnesota yesterday a. here's what yet to say typing the storm to climate change. >> in the first debate, the triumph of a the moderates. the remember what he did? he ridiculed the president. for his efforts to fight global warming and economically -- in economically beneficial ways. he said he will turn back to sea. and in my part of america we would like if someone could have done that yesterday. all up and down. [applause] all up and down the east coast. there are mayors, many republicans are being told, you have to move these houses away from the ocean, climate change is going to rise below water level on a permanent basis. if y
of governor romney, president obama will probably say, i haven't gotten his official response, he will probably say the economy is expanding. it is going in the right direction. we need more time for number of new jobs we really need but we're going in the right direction. governor romney will almost certainly respond we're not growing fast enough. we could do a whole lot better without going into all this debt. bill: stuart, thank you. the closing argument for governor romney happens this afternoon. we'll show you which state he is making that in. it will be very interesting to many. thank you, stuart. see you 9:20 on fbn. you got it. martha. martha: let's get another look at this jobs picture. there is combination of 23 million americans who are either unemployed right now or what we call underemployed. more than 3.5 million of those folks have been unemployed a year or more. it taking average for 40.2 weeks for someone unemployed to find a job. that is a very long time. i don't have to tell any folks that are in that situation that is painful. here is another look at it, anothe

economic numbers. norah? >>> in a statement governor mitt romney calls the job numbers a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. they both went on the attack for the first time since hurricane sandy. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i'm elected president on day one, we'll bring real change to america. >> he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor is offering sure ain't change. >> reporter: before the numbers came out, i asked robert gibbs if the higher jobless rate supports romney's criticism of the president's record. >> look, i think what we expect to see is continued movement forward, 32nd month of positive, private sector job growth adding to the 5 million jobs that have been created as a result of those positive months. look, we're not where we all we want to end up, but we are making serious, important progress moving forward. mitt romney isn't a change agent. he wants to getg back to the economic theory that got us into this mess. >>
. >> thank you. norah? >>> for four days during superstorm sandy, president obama and mitt romney took it easy on each other, but on thursday they were back on the attack. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i'm elected president on day one we'll bring real change to america. >> he's saying he's the candidate of change. well, let me tell you, wisconsin, we know what change looks like. and what the governor's offering sure ain't change. >> former white house press secretary robert gibbs is a senior adviser to the obama campaign and join us this morning. good morning, robert. >> good morning, norah, how are you? >> good, good. we have a jobs report coming up today. the unemployment number could tick up. doesn't that reinforce mitt romney's position that obama's record on the economy has been a failure? >> no, look, i think what we expect to see is continued movement forward. 32nd month of positive, private sector job growth adding to the 5 million jobs that's been created as a result of those positive months. look, we're not where we all want to end
. the tracking poll is likely voters has romney up by 5 percentage points. a new washington post abc tracking poll of likely voters has the race even at 49% apiece, a pew research center survey has the candidates not among likely voters, 47% each, can you believe this? and it's still hard to get a sense as to who has the upper hand in key swing states. in florida, a cnn/orc poll has romney up by just one point well within the margin of error. and in north carolina, where democrats held their convention last month, a university poll has it even 45% to 45%. >> mark haleprin, can't get much closer everywhere. >> i mean -- >> and minnesota, minnesota is not even a key swing state. you've got bill clinton going in because a new poll shows mitt romney within the margin of error in minnesota. plus, you have some information about some space where the republicans are about to start rushing in and putting up campaign ads that are not states that the obama team thought they would have to worry about one week out. >> we're going to go into election day not knowing. i don't care how rabid a partisan you
to try. governor romney did his best today while he stood sort of oddly smiling and ulterly silent as a heck lir brought the issue to him during his remarks on the storm. [crowd booing] [crowd chanting u.s.a.] >> jennifer: that look on his face, it's as if he was reminding himself of the deal he struck to get this far. that he wouldn't talk about the climate. even though when he was governor he acknowledged global warming as a real problem that requires real solutions. but instead, mitt romney is going to speak only for his corporate funders and the dirty energy empires that many of them run doing what he has to keep the pipelines of oil and campaign cash flowing. and that includes pandering to the far right who shout u.s.a. rather than confronting this frightening reality that we have entered a new normal in which everyday life is punctuated by frequent and intensifying natural climate disasters. and the megaphone of this fringe wing fox news, keeps reinforcing that message. >> where's the proof? these global warming
republican mitt romney. >> he ridiculed the president. ridiculed the president for his effort to fight global warming and economical beneficial ways. he said oh, you'll turn back the seas. my part of america we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. >> obama camp is also suddenly spending $650,000 on tv ads in pennsylvania. democratic stronghold with 20 electoral votes. they revealed today going on the air in pennsylvania, the obama campaign sees a bluff. stephanie cutter taking a time-out from the bipartisan kumbaya over the storm to tweet romney decision to go up and p.a. proof positive they can't make the current map work to get to 270. throwing out lifelines to pennsylvania, minnesota. #desperate. obama team responds with team romney spending money in north carolina, that battleground may not be locked down as much as the g.o.p. hoped. we'll find out who is expanding the map and who is bluffing one week from tonight. bret? >> bret: ed henry live on the north lawn. thank you. romney campaign shifted slightly from events focused on the election to one less overtly politica
and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said... and what his plan would do. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> super storm sandy moves in and leaves widespread damage and millions in the dark this morning. >>> and breaking news. as if storm damage wasn't enough, look at this. new york city firefighters battling a massive fire, new overnight. good morning, everyone. i'm aaron gilchrist. >> and i'm eun yang. welcome to "news 4 today" for this tuesday, october 30th, 2012. >> we are keeping a close eye on sandy. right now the storm being blamed for at least 16 deaths, including one in anne arundel county and one in montgomery county, maryland. more than 6 million homes and businesses in the dark. nyu's tisch hospital evacuated last night because of a power outage. doctors and nurses started with the sickest and the youngest, loading them into ambulances. that includes 20 babies in the neonatal intensive care unit. some on respirators operating under battery power. and if the power outages weren't enough, a 13-foot wave of sea wa
of the romney's biggest supporters, but he commended the president on his handling of the crisis. president obama will not see the damage sandy caused in new york city in person. the obama administration says the president wants to make sure police and rescue aren't drawn away from their response to the disaster. the president often works with local police and first responders when the president travels to a disaster zone. new york city mayor michael bloomberg says he's fine with the president's decision. >> the governor of maryland and virginia will head to their respective states. virginia governor will go to chincoteague island while maryland governor will go to ocean city, where the town saw three feet of standing water due to flooding. and o'malley will visit the town of cristfield, which saw its worst flooding since gloria in 1985. news >>> news 4's melissa mollet is live in old town, where some people believe water could get higher. >> reporter: we'll have high tide at 10:00 tonight. and tom kierein telling me tomorrow may actually be the worst of it. take a look right now. we are at
tornado romney. and it's obviously close, but the first time romney had even a modest lead in ohio and perhaps, ads like this one, criticizing president obama's handseling of the auto industry could sway voters there. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy, and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. mitt romney will fight for every american job. charles: all right guys, ford didn't take a bailout and amazing numbers, general motors in the meantime, losing market share, bogged down by the volt, bogged down by a pension, bogged down by government interference, i don't know. >> all of solvable exception the pension problem. they didn't go through a regular structured bankruptcy which is what romney said they could do. yeah, but governor romney there was no private finance, remember the financial markets were collapsing and yet if you read his op-ed and i did the other way, 2008 op-ed put it in restructured bankruptcy and then have government-- >> as a back stop. >> a lot of conservatives don't like that, but you can see what he was talking about. charl
i hear mitt romney talk about his economic agenda, it's all the supply side tax cuts and that will do more harm than good. >> hold on, jared. >> we got to go. much as i would love to hear you debate that, we have to go. jared, you make me feel better. you'll be back. peter, we'll see you around. experts expect the cost of hurricane sandy to top $60 billion when you add in lost business and property damage. it is day four without power for 3.5 million people across parts of long island, new jersey and new york city. residents are facing widespread gas shortages, many waiting in lines for hours, three to five hours to fill the tank or get fuel for generators and many can't fill the tank. even tree companies are putting jobs on hold because even they can't find enough gas to fuel their equipment. frustration is mounting in staten islands where residents say they're being ignored. that's where richard liu has been talking with survivors. why do they feel ignored throughout in staten island? >> reporter: toure, day five since hurricane sandy has hit, and they're asking the
romney at 48%. that effectively is a dead heat given the poll's 3.5-point sampling error. cnn's national correspondent john king is in denver for us right now. john, you're taking a closer look at this poll. what else are you finding? >> reporter: wolf, because of that dead heat you can feel the intensity as both campaigns try to gin upturnout including in the early voting period which ends tomorrow here in colorado. both candidates doing well where they need to, you might say a slight edge for the president. i'll show you what i mean. in denver and bolder, the two biggest urban areas in the state of colorado, more democratic voters. 63% for the president, 34% for governor romney in the urban areas of denver and bolder. that's what the president needs to keep for turnout on election day. suburbs a smaller but significant advantage for the president in the denver suburbs. 53% to 45% for governor romney. if you look at the more rural, conservative, the rest of colorado, that's why governor romney's in this race. he's getting 55% of the vote to 43% for the president in the rest of the state
about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. t
romney you get to say, the unemployment rate has gone higher, and it's still too high. if you are barack obama, you can at on another month, i guess -- i don't know how many months now it is of private sector unemployment. private sector employment growth. what it says to you when you see numbers like 171,000, we believe that 250,000 is the kind of number you have to see to really get the economy going, so this one splits right down the middle. we're in ohio, a state that's split down the middle. undecided split down the middle, and a jobs report that splits down the middle. >> do people feel this? do they feel the recovery, do you think, the folks you talk to? >> what do you think, john? >> i think people do have the sense that things are getting better? they're out of this -- we were in toledo four years ago. the unemployment rate was 12.6%. now it's actually lower than the national average. wered 7.5%. there is a sense that things are getting better, so we're just talking to the mayor of toledo, mayor bell. he was saying that the auto bailout had a big impact, but people understand th
the president cancels another day of campaigning governor mitt romney is focusing on key battleground state of florida. this as we take a live look what is a rally in tampa. you see the stage sort of in the distance there. that is where former governor jeb bush will appear at any moment with mitt romney. the pair will travel to coral gables and jacksonville for two morallies later day. janice dean mentioned we are less than a week away from election day. chief political correspondent carl cameron is live in tampa with it all. hey, carl. >> reporter: hi, jenna. romney is eager to get back in the campaign saddle after day and a half lull for the sandy disaster. mr. romney has three events here in florida, a key battleground state where the polls continue to tighten. we've been telling everybody for year-and-a-half this is likely to end up close in a number of key battleground states as well as national polls. the national polls have been within the margin literally for weeks. in florida the latest quinnepiac survey, president is up two points. well within the margin and basically reflection o
to the polls, governor romney jumps back on the campaign trail. but first from fox this wednesday night, assessing the damage after the unprecedented storm and with each hour the full scope of sandy's destruction is becoming clearer. earlier today, president obama toured the destruction in atlantic city and really up and down the jersey shore with the jersey governor chris christie. republic and democrat working together. we'll have more on that in a minute. as you know this storm affected tens of millions of people up and down the east coast, as far as inland as chicago. the hardest hit states by far, new jersey and then new york. this is new video of an nypd helicopter crew rescuing stranded people off the roof of a house in staten island. the home surrounded by some pretty deep water. and, remember these pictures of the firestorm. breezy point section of queens. they are really stunning. it burned out of control for hours on the night of the storm. we'll take a look at these new and staggering aerials of the aftermath. about 100 homes in the middle class community burned to the groun
know, those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. so i looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> our viewers are sharing their pictures of the storm's damage. these are from devin drive in fall church. she writes that there are four trees down on this street. two of them in the same yard. if you have pictures you would like to share, e-mail them to us at isee@nbcwashington.com. >>> mitt romney plans to return to full time campaigning tomorrow after several events canceled because of the storm. president obama won't return to the campaign trail until thursday. the president may have the most to gain or to lose from sandy. >> reporter: the second day off the campaign trail in
knocked the candidates off the campaign trail and mitt romney is in a critically important battleground state in ohio. how could sandy affect the presidential election? we'll talk with sean spicer coming up. plus, wall street remaining shut for the second day in a row, the first time that's happened since 1888 when a blizzard buried new york under two feet of snow. we'll talk about sandy's economic far-ranging impact and we want to see your pictures of hurricane sandy only if it's safe to do so. please share photos by tweeting us using the #msnbcpics. and here's the live shot, the dangling crane that happened at the building 157. they're working now on e for thes to secure that and make sure no one gets hurt. we're back after this. so, what hap pens if i'm in an accident and need to get my car fixed? progressive makes it easy, because we give you choices. you can pick where to get your car fixed, we can cut you a check, or, at our service center, we take care of everything for you. [ relaxing music playing ] [ chuckles ] -whew, so many choices. -take your time. -the service center. -oka
opponent governor romney proposed a very different way. he's argued that he essentially doesn't want a federal government role in disaster response. he made these remarks on the subject at a debate last year saying not only should we get rid of a federal disaster response, but maybe it should even just be taken over by private business. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. instead of thinking in the federal budget what we should cut, we should ask ourselves the opposite question, what should we keep? we should take all of what we're doing at the federal level and say what are the things we're doing that we don't have to do and those things we got to stop doing because we're borrowing $1.6 trillion more this year than we're taking in. we cannot -- we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral in my view for us to continue to rack up large
